It was the fifth most distracting sight, according to data for 2013-18.

Top was Buckingham Palace with 203 accidents.

Runner-up was Brighton Pier with 124, with Edinburgh’s Scott Monument next on 89.

The Houses of Parliament was fourth with 79, according to figures from road safety charity THINK! and Select Car Leasing.

A Select spokesman said: “Rubber-necking has developed from spying an accident to drivers actively slowing down to peek at landmarks.”
